Neurodevelopmental Conditions and their impact on Mental Health

Individuals with a neurodevelopmental condition (NDC) can often develop a mental health difficulty as a result of the impact of the condition, or the responses of others to them and their differences. This course will look at common mental health issues and how to avoid and manage them to support children and young people with NDCs. It will also consider when is the time to look for further interventions and how to access these locally and nationally.

Our awareness-raising training will increase your understanding of mental health difficulties associated with neurodevelopmental conditions; developing your skills and confidence with practical strategies to better support children, young people, adults and families living with mental health difficulties associated with neurodevelopmental conditions.

Who is the training for?

This training is designed to support professionals working with children, young people with neurodevelopmental conditions (NDCs) and their families. It has been developed to provide an awareness and understanding of the day to day challenges of living with NDCs and their impact on mental health.

By the end of the training, participants will:

  • recognise the characteristics of autism, ADHD and other neurodevelopmental conditions
